  • 1 1/2 oz Cognac
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice

Concocted by the Franco-American WWI flying ace Raoul Lufbery. Legend has it that he liked champagne, but for a kick added it to Cognac which made him feel shelled from a "75mm French Howitzer". In a cocktail mixer with ice, combine cognac, sugar and lemon juice. Shake until chilled. Pour into champagne flute. Pour champagne over concoction. Garnish with lemon twist and serve.
